Labor Shortages Boost Demand for Finishing Process Equipment
SinoFoldingCarton 2011 to help manufacturers upgrade finishing processes

At the beginning of Spring, China’s labor shortages, nationwide, were even more acute than in 2010. The shortages are not only being felt in the Pearl and Yangtze River Deltas, coastal areas like Tianjin or large cities like Beijing; they extend as far as northern and Midwestern cities like Chengdu and Wuhan.

The labor-intensive folding carton packaging and printing industry is not immune to the worker shortage. Along the production line in folding carton manufacturing, finishing is the process most adversely affected. Manufacturers must, therefore, work out how to cut costs and eliminate staff shortages. All this in a fiercely competitive folding carton packaging and printing market where customer demand means an increasing need for greater production efficiency. It is survival of the fittest and the fastest as companies that can rapidly respond to customer demand are the ones that survive.

This call for greater manufacturing agility is why it so important to increase automation. In doing so, manufacturers can reduce the number of staff involved in the finishing process, and cut operation times.

Because commodity packaging is rising in profile, finishing process technology is key to the final quality and appearance of product packaging. It can't change the color of the printed graphics on folding carton, but it can greatly improve visual appeal. This adds value and aids sales promotion.

A greater number of folding carton businesses have increased their investment in finishing process equipment. They are upgrading machines faster, partly automating some finishing processes and even fully automating others.

A showcase for new finishing process technologies and equipment

Numerous high profile local and international finishing process equipment manufacturers for the packaging and printing industry will gather at SinoFoldingCarton 2011 at the Beijing International Exhibition Center from July 6 to July 8. On-site, they will show new equipment, products, technologies and highly automated folding carton manufacturing solutions. The exhibitors aim to provide visitors with an efficient and convenient platform to improve production processes and achieve high efficiency by upgrading the finishing process.
